Pope Francis: A Man of His Word

Friday, 6/1 – Thursday, 6/7

Starring: Pope Francis, Angela Merkel, Barack Obama, Donald Trump, John Kerry, Melania Trump, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Shimon Peres, Vladimir Putin

Pope Francis: A Man of His Word is intended to be a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary about him. The pope’s ideas and his message are central to this documentary, which sets out to present his work of reform and his answers to today’s global questions. From his deep concern for the poor and wealth inequality, to his involvement in environmental issues and social justice, Pope Francis engages the audience face-to-face and calls for peace.

The film’s direct-to-camera visual and narrative concepts engage the audience face-to-face with the pope, creating a dialogue between him and, literally, the world. Taking questions from people of all walks of life, Pope Francis responds to farmers and workers, refugees, children and the elderly, prison inmates, and those who live in favelas and migrant camps. All of these voices and faces are a cross section of humanity that join in a conversation with Pope Francis.

Won't You Be My Neighbor

Friday, 6/29 – Thursday, 7/5

Starring: Fred Rogers, François Scarborough Clemmons, Yo-Yo Ma

In Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet from Stardom) looks back on the legacy of Fred Rogers, focusing on his radically kind ideas. While the nation changed around him, Fred Rogers stood firm in his beliefs about the importance of protecting childhood.

For over thirty years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer was beamed daily into homes across America. In his beloved television program, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Fred and his cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues, in a simple, direct fashion. There hadn’t been anything like Mr. Rogers on television before and there hasn’t been since.

Though he may be best known today as a soft-spoken, cardigan-wearing children’s television host, in reality, Fred Rogers’ career represents a sustained attempt to present a coherent, beneficent view about how we should best speak to children about important matters and how television could be used as a positive force in our society.

“For the many generations that grew up with Rogers’ friendly face as their guide, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” is like peering into the past with renewed clarity and wishing his civility had caught on.”

First Reformed

Starring: Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, Bill Hoag, Cedric Kyles

From writer-director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political, and planetary. Ethan Hawke gives the performance of his career as Reverend Ernst Toller.

Reverend Ernst Toller is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, the church is now a tourist attraction catering to a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life, with its state-of-the-art facilities and 5,000-strong flock. When a pregnant parishioner asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clergyman finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future, until he finds redemption in an act of grandiose violence.

  • Director: Paul Schrader
  • Rating: Not Rated
  • Runtime: 1 hour 48 minutes
  • Genre: Drama

“It is an exquisite piece of filmmaking and also a blunt, pulpy instrument, a despairing, fully sustained howl of a movie that is easily this director's finest work in years.”

Mary Shelley

Starring: Elle Fanning, Stephen Dillane, Douglas Booth, Tom Sturridge, Bel Powley

Director Haifaa Al-Mansour (Wadjda) is the first female Saudi Arabian film director, and as such seems well-suited to tell the story of Mary Shelley, a woman trying to break through the confines of her culture's repression of women.

She will forever be remembered as the writer who gave the world Frankenstein. But the real life story of Mary Shelley—and the creation of her immortal monster—is nearly as fantastical as her fiction. Raised by a renowned philosopher father in 18th-century London, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin is a teenage dreamer determined to make her mark on the world when she meets the dashing and brilliant poet Percy Shelley. So begins a torrid, bohemian love affair marked by both passion and personal tragedy that will transform Mary and fuel the writing of her Gothic masterwork.

  • Director: Haifaa Al-Mansour
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Runtime: 2 hours
  • Genre: Drama, Romance

“Mary Shelley is a luscious-looking spectacle, drenched in the colors and visceral sensations of nature, the sensuality of young lovers, the passionate disappointment of loss and betrayal. But above all it is a film about ideas that breaks out of the well-worn mold of period drama (partly, anyway) by reaching deeply into the mind of the extraordinary woman who wrote the Gothic evergreen Frankenstein.”

Sorry to Bother You

Starring: Lakeith Stanfield, Armie Hammer, Danny Glover, Tessa Thompson

In a dystopian not-too-distant future, black telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success and is propelled into a macabre universe.

  • Director: Boots Riley
  • Runtime: 1 hour 45 minutes
  • Genre: Science-Fiction, Comedy

“A pro-union, anti-corporate, race-conscious, Silicon Valley side-eyeing tale of one man’s journey through the late-capitalist nightmare of an “alternate present” version of Oakland, Sorry to Bother You’s greatest asset is the strength of its conviction, and how far it’s willing to go to make sure it stays burned in your brain.”

BlacKkKlansman

Starring: John David Washington, Adam Driver, Alec Baldwin, Topher Grace

From producer Jordan Peele (Get Out) and director Spike Lee (Do The Right Thing) comes a stranger-than-fiction, based-on-a-true-story uncompromising comedy about race.

It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman, into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.

  • Director: Spike Lee
  • Runtime: 2 hours 8 minutes
  • Genre: Drama, Comedy, Thriller

“BlacKkKlansman is both hilarious and exquisitely direct, and had it been made before November 2016, you might call Lee’s approach a little alarmist. But if anything, he’s restrained. This is an angry film as well as a hugely entertaining one, and Lee has complete control over its shifting tone, minute by minute.”

American Animals

Starring: Barry Keoghan, Evan Peters, Ann Dowd, Blake Jenner, Jared Abrahmson, Udo Kier

Lexington, Kentucky, 2004: Spencer and Warren dream of remarkable lives beyond their middle-class suburban existence. They head off to colleges in the same town, haunted by the fear they may never be special in any way. Spencer is given a tour of his school’s incredibly valuable rare book collection and describes it all to Warren. Suddenly, it hits them—they could pull off one of the most audacious art thefts in recent history, from the university’s special collections library. Convinced they can get away with it, they recruit two other friends. Suddenly, the dance of knowing what happens if they cross the line becomes all-consuming.

  • Runtime: 1 hour 56 minutes
  • Genre: Drama

“A movie seemingly custom-made for the era of alternative facts, American Animals feels like a new kind of true-crime thriller: one that shamelessly rewrites its truths in real time as it goes.”

Eigth Grade

Starring: Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton

Thirteen-year-old Kayla endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through the last week of middle school—the end of her thus far disastrous eighth grade year—before she begins high school.

  • Director: Bo Burnham
  • Runtime: 1 hour 34 minutes
  • Genre: Comedy

“Eighth Grade rejects predictable plot points and instead lives on the electric edge of awkwardness and uncertainty and doubt that represents the middle school experience; you never quite know what’s going to happen to Kayla, and that feels right.”
